Yummy chutney

I am sure a lot of us love the flavors of roasted vegetables, especially roasted red peppers. I made this roasted red pepper- roasted tomato chutney as a side dish for some nice hot dosas.

Here is the recipe

1 whole red pepper, roasted 
2 medium tomatoes, roasted
1 onion, sliced and caramalized separately (reserve a tbsp or two for garnish)
whole red chillies (as per your taste) and red chilli powder
Ground coriander (about a tsp)
Ginger, chopped finely
salt and pepper to taste

The seasoning included
Mustard seeds
Urad dal
Cumin seeds
Cilantro, coarsely chopped

The method is pretty simple- 
Roast the red bell peppers and tomatoes (I did it in an oven at 425F, brushed my veggies with some olive oil, added salt and pepper to taste).
Caramelize the onions separately in a pan. 
Grind all the veggies along with whole red chillies, chilli powder, ground coriander, ginger, salt and pepper.
Season and garnish
Note: you will have to season with salt and pepper in layers. Garlic might be a good addition too.

Enjoy with hot dosas or idlis!
